How to produce bootchart:
1. Install bootchart
2. Edit /boot/grub/menu.lst
Add the line “init=/sbin/bootchartd” to the kernel line. So the entry looks like:
# Arch Linux Modified title Arch Linux 126.96.36.199 Modified Bootchart root (hd0,0) kernel /vmlinuz26-ARCHMOD34 root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/fa339e13-3a86-4c65-b19a-615827aee799 ro init=/sbin/bootchartd initrd /kernel26-ARCHMOD34.img
It is recommended to make a new entry so that you don’t have to keep editing the menu.lst file whenever you want to produce the bootchart.
3. Produce the bootchart
This will produce .png file in the current directory.
